On last weekend’s Rally Sunseeker International, the first round of the British Rally Championship, Garry Pearson and Craig Wallace scored maximum points in the Twingo Renaultsport R1 Trophy.
According to Garry’s Dad, Monty, the car was finished on the Wednesday and then taken south for the rally, typical last minute stuff.
With the car so new and Garry’s first time out in it, he wasn’t up for any risks and let double British Rally Champion Keith Cronin, in an identical Twingo, disappear off and up the road until he got a puncture and then broke a driveshaft.
Garrry wasn’t without his troubles either, as he bent a steering arm on a rock, but got back to service where the team was helped out by Monster Sport Europe who look after the Twingo Trophy cars.
More important to Garry and the team than the champagne finish, were the maximum points on the first round of the Twingo Renaultsport Championship and the £750 parts voucher. He also got full points in the MSA British Junior Rally Championship which has an end of season prize drive on offer on the Rallye du Var – that’s just a bit further south than Rallye Sunseeker, in Frenchland.Nice one boys.
